A lot of things can happen on an airplane. You can fall in love, catch a criminal, or even get into an all-out-war with a bunch of snakes.
We, of course, are talking about movies. Movies that take place on a plane or in an airport seem to have a unique quality to them. They make rom-coms more romantic, action films more thrilling, and dramas more heart-wrenching all because they take place 36,000 feet in the air.
But with a history of crashing, bombings, and hijackings, planes also bring with them a sense of anticipation, fear, and tension. With all these emotions already associated with airplanes, it’s clear to see why they make such great settings for movies. From frantic mothers, psycho killers, and of course, a plane full of snakes, these are the best movies that take place in an airplane.
Airplanes. Ever since 1903, when the Wright brothers flew the first plane in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, planes have fascinated us. They invoke great memories of your last vacation and fantasies of faraway places.
